Non-Hippie Vegetarian

Chicago native living in Wisconsin dealing with Packer Fans and Cheeseheads. I'm a fan of the PBS show Downton Abbey, Teen Wolf (despite my age), the German gymnast Marcel Nguyen (though I love gymnastics in general) Chicago Bears (Da Bears!) and lover of deep dish pizza (meatless of course)!
Marcel looks way younger than a guy about ready to turn 27.  Despite this…I’d still tap that.

  • I had no idea I could make a call from my computer. Okay, okay, I'm old, I admit it. When you reach my age you are lucky to remember the route to get to work (I'm overexaggerating a bit, but wait until you reach middle age!). So my pizza will be here in about 45 minutes. Life is good. Really good.

My comments while watching the P&G Championships Mens Sr Day 1 on LiveStream and NBCSN.

Me:  What the frick is goin’ on with Raj Bhavsar’s hair?  It’s stuck in a time warp!  Is he going to demonstrate getting jiggy with it and raise the roof while dancing the tootsie roll?

Me:  John Macready proving once again that white people can’t dance.  Can someone stun gun this guy?  Well at least he didn’t try to do the Harlem Shake this time.  *body trembles in disgust*

Me:  Ohhhhhhhhh.  Poor Sam Mikulak fell on his cute butt while on floor exercise.  If he needs someone to rub his cheeks…I’m just a phone call away.  ;)

Me:  Ya know, if you are going to be interviewed on national television (Gabby Douglas) that is viewed not only in the U.S. but in many parts of the world on youtube (Gabby Douglas), the least you can do is run a brush through your hair first (Gabby Douglas). 

Me:  There is just something wrong with Tim Daggets teeth.  Every time he smiles my skin starts to crawl and I feel my lunch coming back up.

Me:  Why does Nastia Liukin make her voice sound so innocent when she commentates?  Gurl, you a faker through and through.

Me:  Donnell Whittenburg is a cyborg.  We are all going to die.  Resistance is futile.

sunvapor asked: What the fucks happening in Ferguson?

clehmentine:

Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.

Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (beware: somewhat graphic image linked)

There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident),  that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.

According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.

According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.

Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)

The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.

It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.

And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.

I think what has happened in Ferguson will not go away for a very long time and will hopefully bring about a much needed discussion in regards to our law enforcement in this country.  I’m truly frightened; I feel like my country is unraveling right in front of my eyes.

Sad day everyone. Very Sad. Robin Williams has died. According to initial police reports he committed suicide. He will be sorely missed. *bowing head in silence*
